Steelers add Deion Belue

The Steelers have added a rookie cornerback and parted ways with a rookie offensive lineman.

According to the NFL’s transactions, Pittsburgh was awarded former Alabama corner Deion Belue on waivers from Miami on Wednesday.

To make room for Belue, the Steelers waived offensive tackle Kaycee Ike, an undrafted free agent from UAB.

The 5-foot-11, 182-pound Belue was a two-season starter for the Crimson Tide, notching 60 tackles, breaking up 10 passes and recording three interceptions. Belue, who signed with Miami earlier in May after going undrafted, will vie to stick on a Steelers roster that is in need of some young talent at cornerback.

The Steelers have all 90 roster spots filled.

    Being a CB on the steelers roster, kid actually has a chance to stay with them.

    Why aren’t the Steelers adding Bill Leavy to the roster?

    I welcome any CB help for this team. Chances are he won’t stick, but I’d rather see him get an opportunity than another random offensive lineman. They are in a decent position there especially with Munchak. But if this guy can help he deserves a chance

    Since being Tebowed out of the playoffs years ago the Steelers have not had a winning record and will continue their decline so these additions really won’t change anything

    Who is Deion belue? never heard of him

    All I remember about this kid is watching Mike Evans torch him again and again against A&M

    Can he play QB?

    I like the Munchak comment. I think if the front five can stay healthy for 12 games, that is how many the Steelers will win, at a minimum.

    You just never know. With Lebeau and Lake coaching him, he could blossom into a productive DB.

    Steelers Fans: Miami dumped this guy after just 6 hours on the field. Something tells me you shouldn’t get your hopes up like you signed a CB that will make your Team or even Practice Squad. The Dolphins need help in the secondary! This should speak volumes.

    hes good. hes actually really good. You heard it here first. he will be a starter in the burgh in 2015

    I’m convinced that the Steelers don’t place any value on the cornerback position.

    They always grab a no-name CB late in the draft or off the street. Then during games they give receivers a 10-yard cushion on every play.

    Deion Belue sounds like a cheese to me.

    Jarvis Landry ate this dudes lunch 2 years in a row as shown in the above photo. Landry is the steal of this draft- write it down.

    I loved him in “The Jungle Book.”

    I’m an Alabama fan and this dude is a scrub

  17. bengalguy says: May 29, 2014 7:03 AM

    Hey Crown, can YOU play QB better than Pig Pen?

  18. steelerdynasty2010 says: May 29, 2014 7:13 AM

    glaring need, and we address it with an already waived UFA?

  19. twpguy1964 says: May 29, 2014 7:33 AM

    No big deal. He wont be on the opening day roster but neither would the kid they cut. THis team, and the DB position in the next 2 to 3 years is going to be a mess. If Allen doesnt play well this year, Colbert should be fired for passing on a couple good ones in the draft

    Go Steelers!

    Actually with the addition of a quicker defensive front, the corners won’t have to do much. That’s how Ike Taylor has had a long career. He hasn’t had to cover anyone that long.

    Bengal fan is a child. Grow up.

    You can’t say the Steelers FO does nothing for the defensive back positions, for years they took youth in the backfield and allowed the front seven to get “old and slow.” LeBeau learned the hard way that if you can’t get pressure, even the fastest and most athletic backs cannot protect with today’s offense.

    Completely revamping the front seven means they hopefully will finally start bringing the heat, and then the DBs won’t have to cover for eight seconds on every play…

    Combine that with a zone-based secondary, and all you need is speed.
